5 Extraordinary chairs from Hunter and Rose March 23 2015
"Winters Bone" library chair is a imposing and stately chair that would create a focal point to any home. As decorative as it is comfortable, this 19th century gothic revival chair is handsome and individual. The marriage of carved scrolled beech arms leading to elegant turned legs and Winter’s Bone fabric inspired by taxidermy and the wonderful collections of skeletal deer in the Museum of Natural History in Dublin creates a chair of character.
Our Edwardian "Entomology" chair is wonderfully appealing and amazingly comfortable. The rich patina of the turned oak legs and capital upright supports compliments the vibrant detail of the Entomology fabric inspired by boxes of carefully preserved exotic insects that have always been a key component of cabinets of curiosities. Position it by a fire paired with our footstool for a original accent piece for your home.
The beautifully elegant silhouette of our 19th Century Louis-Philippe Walnut Armchairs would grace any home. They are part of an original set that includes a wonderful day bed also available and have the versatility and character to fit perfectly in a sitting room or bedroom. The rich colour and delightful design of the fabric by Tradescant and Sons inspired by the artist and illustrator Edward Lear’s drawing of a vivid yellow parakeet creates a exotic and colonial feel to these unique chairs.
The Moth chair is wonderfully decorative creating the sense and feel of cabinets of curiosities and butterfly collections in glass domes on ebonised bases. The beautifully delicate pattern of the moths marries perfectly with the elegantly detailed turned legs and capital upright supports. The fine detail of the buttoning creates a hybrid of moths across the piece. Its bohemian and eclectic feel makes a original chair for a focal point in the siting room of bedroom of any traditional or modern home.
Our arts and crafts tub chair is a versatile occasional chair that would create graceful addition to a siting room, hallway or dining room. It is upholstered in a fabric finely detailed with an oriental pattern in a palette of blue silks embroidered onto linen with elegant cabriole legs and invitingly comfortable curved back .
